Engine cover 2018

I purchased a new 2018 GT just over 2 weeks ago. Black with the only option being the black accent package. MSRP $36,990.00. Paid OTD $34,700.00. Curious if I am the only one that thinks the new for 2018 engine cover is ugly? I removed mine yesterday and have it stored in my basement. Looks much better to me. The GT350 does not use this cover.

It may be ugly but it is a sound muffler for the new direct injection set up. The DI makes alot of ticking noise due to the high pressure pump. FYI.

Haha, yes. I absolutely hate the 2018 engine covers. I like the 11-14 covers the best, and 15-17's are ok, then 18 and it's just WTF, that's hideous.

I have driven the car several miles without the cover and if there is more noise from the direct injection I have not noticed any difference. Not saying you are wrong. I just have not noticed any additional engine noise.

When I first saw the 2018 engine cover I thought to myself, who's idea was this. There are a few online websites selling and posting pictures of a 2018 engine cover that appears to look a lot like the 2017 engine covers. They are actually selling the factory engine cover that comes on the 18's. Hopefully someone will come out with a custom cover specifically for the 2018.

Will the 2017 cover not fit the 2018?
